The new year brings the perfect opportunity to self reflect and create goals for the future. We’re used to hearing about fitness resolutions, but what about improving when it comes to maintaining your car?

After all, cars are an important part of everyday life. Here at Village Motors Inc., we understand how easy it can be to procrastinate maintenance needs, and how extraneous it can be to take your car to the shop when it doesn’t have an immediate issue. However, staying on top of things will help prevent future damage and costly repairs.

Setting resolutions can help you mark your calendar and stay on top of your car’s needs.

Get the Oil Changed

We know how important oil changes are, but they can be easy to put off. Automotive experts say to change your oil every 5,000 to 8,000 miles. Of course, there are several factors that affect this timeframe, such as car type, driving habits, and environment. For an accurate interval, contact our Dodge service experts serving Wooster, OH today.

Clean the Car

Especially if you have kids or pets that are frequent riders, keeping a clean interior is vital not only to the health of the vehicle, but also the resale value  later on. Vacuuming is one chore that is tedious, yet absolutely necessary. Pair this with wiping down the dashboard, steering wheel, and other elements for a tidy cabin. Don’t forget the exterior too! Treat your car to frequent washes, and even a few waxes throughout the year to help preserve its value.

Stay Vigilant With Maintenance

Just like you go in for doctor’s appointments, your car needs to go to the shop for a check-up. Sometimes, issues progress so gradually that you don’t even realize they’re there. Routine maintenance helps our technicians spot problems early on and provide solutions.
